The Rock Menu

Our menu compliments the magic of the location. Ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible: much of our sea-food is harvested from the reefs around the restaurant, game fish is caught daily by local fishermen, beef is sourced from Tanzania’s best farms, spices are bought from the spice farms of Zanzibar, vegetables locally grown, and our pastas made in our own kitchen.
To our guests, many of the items are familiar in name. However, we present these dishes with a twist of Zanzibar, new ways of amplifying and bringing out the flavour, aromas and texture of the underlying ingredients.
A range of wines, spirits, beers, sodas, juices and soft drinks is available. Be daring, ask about our range of cocktails to compliment the occasion!
